Kings set regular-season roster by waiving Tyler Ulis, Hollis Thompson

SACRAMENTO -- The drama is over and the Kings' roster is now set at 15, along with a pair of two-way players.

According to the team, both Tyler Ulis and Hollis Thompson have been waived, bring the team's roster down to the league maximum before the Oct. 21 2 p.m. PST deadline.

After a promising start to his career with the Phoenix Suns, Ulis struggled with hip injuries last season and then spent most of training camp on the sidelines with a groin injury.

The Kings are hoping he can get his career back on the right track and barring a waiver claim, they expect the 23-year-old point guard to join the team's G League affiliate in Stockton.

The former Kentucky product has averaged 7.5 points, 4.0 assists, 0.9 steals and 20.9 minutes per game in 133 career games over three seasons with the Suns and Bulls.

Thompson was a late add to the roster. He played for the Kings during the California Classic, and like Ulis, he is likely headed to Stockton for the upcoming season.

The 28-year-old forward has seen action in 265 NBA games over his career, posting 7.7 points and 3.1 rebounds in over 6400 minutes of action. His G League rights were acquired by Stockton for a first-round selection over the summer.

A surprise addition to the roster is Tyler Lydon. The 6-foot-10 forward has played in just 25 NBA games since being selected with the 24th overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft. He was limited in camp due to a hip injury and played just one eight minute stretch for the team.

The former Syracuse Orangeman spent time in the G League in each of the last two seasons and is likely headed to Stockton once he's healthy.

General manager Vlade Divac has until Monday to finalize the roster, but here is how it looks as of Sunday afternoon.
